We promote financing solutions for a sustainable world
The Financing for Sustainable Development Office (FSDO) provides coherent and integrated support to Member States to unlock financing and other means of implementation for the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals. We promote financing solutions for a sustainable world by:
- Serving as a global focal point for coherent, effective, inclusive and fully integrated substantive and organizational support to the financing for development processes overseen by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and General Assembly (GA), such as the follow-up and review of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda;
- Preparing action-oriented policy analysis and concrete proposals and recommendations on financing for sustainable development and means of implementation, drawing on the strengths of inter-agency expertise and the experience of the United Nations development system;
- Contributing to the United Nations’ coordinated approaches on global financial issues, including through support to the United Nations engagement with the Group of 20;
- Serving as the United Nation System’s hub for work on international development cooperation and international cooperation in tax matters, and related capacity development programmes to support developing countries efforts to mobilize resources for the 2030 Agenda.
The Office ensures that the intergovernmental processes on financing for development, including the Financing for Development Forum, the Development Cooperation Forum, and the relevant subsidiary bodies of the UN Economic and Social Council – such as the Committee of Experts on International Cooperation in Tax Matters -- work in a coherent and consensus-driven manner.
We also serve as the coordinator and substantive editor of the annual Financing for Sustainable Development Report of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Financing for Development, which reports annually on progress in implementing the Addis Agenda and other financing for development outcomes and the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and advises the intergovernmental follow-up process.
In addition, the Office provides support to the Secretary-General in coordinating the participation of United Nations representatives in the G20 processes, as well as other global economic and financial institutions and fora.
